    Chiefs Trim Prospect, 84
Buckley Yields
Only 7 Hits,
Whiffs 11 Men
Chiefs Pile Up Enough
Tallies In First Four
Frames To Post Victory
The Umpqua Chiefs defeated
Prospect 8-4 Sunday, in a South
ern Oregon League game that
offered clever pitching by Claude
Buckley, a youngster with a
terrifically fast ball; who struck
out eight men in the first three
innings and altogether sent 11
men to the bench via the strike
out route during nine innings
of hurling.
The Chiefs were off to a fast
start in the first inning, when
shortstop Bolensheek of Prospect
threw Roy Long's ground ball
high over the first baseman's
head, advancing Long to sec
ond. virg Sanders smashed a grourid
single, scoring Long, Sanders go
ing to second on the throw-in.
George Sanders then lined a
single over the shortstop's head,
k J scoring Virg Sanders. George was
7 trapped off first by a fast relay
iram me outneia.
Norm West ended the first
inning by powering a home run
into deep right center field.
1' Buckley, with a three-run lead
to work on, gave up one hit
in the last of the first and fan
ned two men. In the Chiefs' half
of the second, Buckley, leading
off, drew a base on balls. Roy
Long followed with a single,
then Virg Sanders sacrificed both
men along.
George Sanders grounded out,
short to first, with Buckley scor
ing on the play.
Wilkensen, who beat the Chiefs
twice last year while playing for
Central Point, retired the side
without further scoring. In the
top of the fourth, Buckley ground
ed out third to first, then Roy
Long singled, but vvas forced
out at second by Virg Sanders.
George Sanders followed with a
screaming single off the third
baseman's shins. Wilkensen walk
ed West to fill the bases, then
walked Huggins, forcing in Virg
Sanders with run number five.
Lovell Baker followed with a
line single, scoring George San
ders and West.
Prospect Posts Tallies
Prospect scored its first run
in the sixth inning, when Priebe,
their second baseman, hit a
single and Frend, their catcher,
who started the season with the
Medford Nuggets in the Far
West League, caught one of Buck
ley's fast balls on the nose, mak
, ing it good for a homer.
I The Chiefs matched this" with
one of their own in the seventh,
when Baker hit a single, which
was kicked around long enough
by the left fielder to allow Baker
to make it to third, where he
scored on Schemer's long single.
In the eighth, Wilkensen led
off with a single1 and moved to
second on a walk to Colly. The
Prospect pitcher scored from sec
ond when Colly was caught off
first on a throw from Huggins
to West. While West and George
Sanders were running Colly
down, Wilkensen scored.
The Chiefs threatened again
in the ninth when Schemer got
his third single of the day, Ed
gar was hit by a pitched ball
and Buckley walked. But with
the sacks loaded, Lindeemar, who
had replaced Wilkensen, bore
down and retired the side.
Prospect scored its final run
in the ninth when Colly walked
and scored on Priene's double.
Bill Schemer and George San
ders each got three hits for the
Chiefs while Lovell Baker and
Roy Long bagged two each.
Bolensheek hit twice for Pros

Track Pennant
SEATTLE, May 23.-UP)-Coach
Jack Mooberry, who got first with the most on
Saturday, is looking for a place
on the Washington State College
trophy hall to nail the 1949
Northern Division track pen
nant. The men of Mooberry picked
up seven firsts, five seconds and
a wide selection of thirds and
fourths to lap the field with 62
points. Oregon squeezed past a
surprising Idaho team for sec
ond with 30, the Vandals col
lecting 22.
Washington wound up with
191, Oregon State with 16 and
Montana with 15.
It was a clear and windless
day, but the only record equal
ling performance was- by W.S.C.
hurdler Fran Polsfoot. He top
ped the high sticks in 14.4 and
the first man to shake his hand
was Washington's Steve Ander
son, who has held the record
alone at the same time since
Dave Henthorne of Oregon
shared high point honors with
Polsfoot, each getting 10 count
ers. The Oregonian was first
with both dashes and Polsfoot
took the low hurdles after his
standout effort in the highs.
Two races produced the best
times the Northwest has seen
this year. Warren Johanson of
Idaho, not considered a serious
contender, stepped out to win
the mile in 4:18.5. Washington's
Bill Steed ambled two miles in
9:32.3 with Dick Paeth of W.S.C.
looming over his shoulder all the
George Rassmussen of Oregon
sailed 14 feet in the pole vault,
missing his own division record
by 2i inches. Montana's Dick
Doyle, expected to set a new
discus mark, missed it by seven
feet with a winning toss of 150
feet 71 inches.
Most of the victors will be
back this week-end for the Pa
cific Coast Conference meet.
Rene LaBelle
Wins Trophy On
Wrestling Card
Flashy Rene LaBelle ended up
with a mighty sore shoulder, but
received a $200 cash and a trophy
for coming out on top in the
eight-man wrestling tournament
at the Armory Saturday night.
One of the greatest wrestling
cards ever seen on the Roseburg
mat was witnessed by a packed
house of roaring spectators, as
LaBelle won a judges' decision
over rough-and-tough newcomer
Lefty Pacer in the final bout.
Pacer injured the popular
Frenchman's shoulder toward the
latter part of the 15-minute bout
by running him into a ring post.
He protested the decision on to
to the crowd, but the spectators
remained firmly on the French
man's side.
In the opening bouts, LaBelle
decisioned Tony Falletti with a
skin-the-cat and Herb Parks slug
ged, roughed and knee-stomped
newcomer Del Wayne to a fall
in 2 minutes 40 seconds. In The
next bout, between Al Szasz and
Tony Ross, a revival of their
grudge match last week, Szasz
was awarded the judges' decision.
Ross was furious and protested
the decision so violently that
Szasz had the timer ring the bell
and invited Ross to come into
the ring with him, beating him

Shut-Outs With Cincy
Associated Press Sporlswriter
The Boston Red Sox can thank
their lucky stars for pitcher Mel
Red Sox fans hate to think
where their favorites would be
today wore it not for the stylish
lefthander from New Orleans. cinch Boston would be much
worse off than its current 14-14
sixth place rating.
While the rest of the pitching
staff has been floundering
around, Parnell has been well
nigh sensational. The 26-year-old
sophomore has made seven starts,
and won all but one.
One of his triumphs came yes
terday when the six-footer had to
wait until the 12th before he was
able to eke out a 3-2 decision over
Virgil Trucks and the Detroit
Tigers, tc make it a perfect day
for the favorite son of the Louis
iana Parnells, Mel drove in two
runs including the game-winning
tally with a 12th inning single.
The Philadelphia Athletics
whipped Cleveland twice yester
day, 5-4 and 7-3, marking the sixth
and seventh Sunday losses in as
many games for the Tribe. The
crippled world champions now
are in seventh place six and a
half games behind the front run
ning New York Yankees.
Shut outs Traded
Ken Raffensberger, veteran
lefthander of the Cincinnati Reds,
shut out Brooklyn, 2-0, on one hit
in the second game of a double
header in Cincinnati. The Dodg
ers took the opener, 3-0, as Don
Newoombe, rookie Negro right
hander, won his first start.
Raffensburger had a no-hitter
until the eighth, when Gil
Hodges, first man to face him,
punctured his dream with a
The Boston Braves tied the
New York Giants for the National
League leadership, beating the
Chicago Cubs, 7-2, while the
Giants divided a doubleheader
with the Cardinals in St. Louis.
The Redbirds won the opener, 3-2,
on Stan Musial's three-ru' homer
in the third. The Gjants walloped
six pitchers in the finale for a
around the ring until the fight
was stopped. In his opening bout
with Billy Weidner, Pacer was
very rough, beating Weidner into
.suomissipn and taking the fall
with a surfboard.
The semi-final match between
LaBelle and Parks went the full
15-minute time limit with LaBelle
being awarded the decision. In
the other semi-windup, Pacer
kicked Szasz out of the ring and
injured Szasz' left arm and col
larbone, and, working on the in
jured arm with hammerlock and
arm stomps, took the fall.
By winning the final match ov
er Pacer, LaBelle earned, beside
the trophy and purse, a title
match with Frank Stojack next
Saturday night at the Armory.

Two Main Events
Scheduled For
May 27 Fight Bill
Some rugged action Is offered
Douglas County fight fans at the
Roseburg Armory Friday, May
27, as Promoters Ernie Nazelrod
and Sandy Sanders feature for
the first time locally a double
main event.
Four clever fighters will pair
off in the top half of the week
end fistic card, with Dallas Ben
nett, Douglas County's own
"fighting deputy," scheduled to
meet Sonny Orrock, Spokane, in
a 10-round heavyweight classic,
while Al "Pinky" Cowan, Spo
kane, meets Mickey Gimmell,
Redding, California, in an eight
rounder. 1
Although the Bennett-Orrock
go is attracting considerable com
ment as a potential knock down,
drag-out affair, equal interest is
centered in the Cowan-Gimmell
Fans remember fair-skinned
"Pinky" as the lad with dyna
mite dukes, whose harmless look
ing appearance is not in keeping
with his ability to hit. Cowan
does not stop fighting one instant
during the time between bells.
He continually dishes out
lethal fistic punishment that
rocks and jars opponents anil
frequently sends them to the can
vas for the count. In a previous
encounter here, Cowan was voted
the outstanding puncher on the
Gimmell is .well remember
here for extremely creditable ac
tion against stout opposition. He
out-boxed Red Garrison of Spo
kane, then dropped a close deci
sion to Jerry Marotti, of Twin
Falls. This latter action did not
lessen the crowd's estimation of
the popular Pitt Indian puncher.
Two preliminary actions will
balance out the card.
13-4 triumph.

in the ninth inning scored Jack
Mayo with the run that gave the
Philadelphia Phillies a 6-5 victory
over Pittsburgh in the first game
of a scheduled doubleheader. The
